Samsung Galaxy tablet SM-T805 appears at the FCC with 10.5-inch display, Exynos 5 Octa SoC
Evidence confirming the existence of new, yet-unannounced Android tablets by Samsung is starting to pile up. Several months ago, the Samsung SM-T805 model name appeared in a user agent profile, and now, the very same slate is also listed in the FCC database. In fact, the commission has approved two models of the said device, the SM-T801 and the SM-T805. The difference between them appears to be that the former is limited to GSM/WCDMA cellular connectivity, while the latter supports LTE on band 5 as well.
As usual, the FCC does not reveal much in terms of hardware specs for the Samsung SM-T801 and SM-T805. What the papers do confirm, however, is that their display diagonal size is 267.5 millimeters, which is about 10.5 inches. The slates are 246.5 mm wide and 176.4 mm tall (9.7 inches by 6.94 inches). Their battery is rated at 30.02Wh at 4.35 volts, which equals 6900mAh.
Digging even further, we managed to discover import records for these two Samsung tablets on Zauba, where it is confirmed that the slates come with displays of 10.1 or 10.5 inch size. But what's even better, the GFX Bench web site already has benchmark results and hardware specs for the Samsung SM-T801, SM-T805, and the SM-T800. Both run Android 4.4.2 and have an Exynos 5 Octa SoC clocked at 1.9GHz. There are 3GB of RAM present, along with 16GB of storage. The screen resolution is listed as 2560 by 1600 pixels. A 8MP camera is available on the tablets' back side, and a 2MP one is in the front.
Among the few things that are still not known about these two tablets are their names and pricing. It is speculated that these could be part of the Galaxy Tab PRO series, or just variant of the Galaxy Tab PRO 10.1 built for a specific market. We'll let you know if we learn more on the matter.
